This is a VERY heavy table but took my husband about 20 minutes to put together by himself (though he's pretty handy). The site says that it is white but mine came in & there's not a hint of white anywhere. It has an antiqued paint treatment on it but it more griege. This worked out fine though to make our white (the empire chairs) stand out more & we have greige in our kitchen/dinning area. It actually looks like I painted it that way myself to match to painted the room to match the table. We get so many compliments on it when people come to visit! The ONLY thing I would complain about (& why I didn't give 5 stars) is that it is not sealed at all. So you will need to seal it or use place mats & coasters. My son's sippy cup dripped 2 drops of milk out on it & it was on there for maybe two minutes before I realized it & cleaned it up. It left 2 small spots on the table where the milk was. We have been using place mats now & once it warms up enough, we'll put poly or some kind of sealer on there. Also do not use a sponge when cleaning the top. I made this mistake & the somewhat rough areas (it is reclaimed wood & antiqued after all) took little pieces out of the sponge. So for now since it's only crumbs on there, I lightly wipe it with a dry hand towel. Hoping it warms up soon though so I don't have to worry about this beautiful table being ruined by two small kinds & their spills.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is WAY off as to what is stated. It says its white but mine came with a distressed greige finish. It works great for our area though b/c those are the colors in my kitchen/dinning area & actually makes the white chairs stand out more.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is fantastic, especially for this price! It is solid wood & well made.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate on all but color.
Beautiful!! Nicer that I imagined. I was reluctant to order something so large online but was willing to take a chance. I put six cream colored chairs with distressed black legs around it and hung a black chandler over it. I did have to seal the surface to prevent water stains but I used a clear matte sealer that did not affect the color at all. I love this table.
I've wanted a table like this for a while and I do very much love the "design/style" of it. I haven't noticed waterspots but I use placemats for eating on it. There is one "rough" patch that always catches on the cleaning cloth. The color is great, it has that "rustic" look, but I'm debating sanding down or "fixing" that rough edge. If pulled the wrong way, I'm certain it would splinter up. Maybe clearcloating it as some of the other reviews had mentioned would be a good idea. Especially if you have younger children.
Here is goes...I was in the market for a trestle table, my initial purchase was going to be at restauration hardware (RH)- gorgeous! but the price was over the top and that was without chairs....fell upon this table as an overstock "other people may like"....the dimentions were perfect and at 50% the cost...figured since they honor returns like a local store off I went... it was delivered today...all I can say is amazing! It doesnt come sealed but small price to pay to save $1000. If I had to place score it would be based upon price (100% wood) the finish is amazing and the picture online doesnt do it justice. I had many concerns and they responded will all questions before delivery. I do not work for O' just a guy that has spent enough time doing the homework in all the stores to get the perfect table for the space....BTW the RH table still rocks but they are crazy for the money and this table more than fits the bill..looks like a million bucks....very happy! Thanks Overstock! now if you can only provide matching chairs I would be in heaven!

I just received this table and Love it but I do agree with the other review. I called Overstock prior to placing order and they said it is sealed but it isn't. It is more grey then an antique white. Thankfully I know a bit about refinishing furniture so I believe I can coat the top with a clear topcoat. I have been looking for this table else where and almost bought it for over $1000 more then listed here. The table is listed as a Winfrey Dining Table on Overstock but on other sites it's listed as a windsor dining table antique white 51007015elp. I am not certain they are identical but the product code was the same and its so close that I was willing to save and purchase here. Although I gave the product 5 stars I am a little disappointed with my experience with overstock or should I say with their delivery company. The table was scheduled to be delivered after about two weeks of placing the order which was great. I scheduled delivery, took off of work only to be contacted the day of delivery and was told only one of the three boxes were in and they needed to reschedule once all items were ready to ship. About a week later all pieces are ready to be delivered. When the delivery company came I asked the driver to place the boxes in the dinning room. He said he was by himself and asked if he could place in garage (which was completely packed) Luckily my son was home and helped him bring the boxes inside the house. I don't know how they can expect one person to drive and deliver a table of this size and weight. I was not happy that my wood floors were scratched with the box being slid in the room and I do intend on calling Overstock about it. I only paid $****.** and the price went up to two days after I purchased. Other then delivery, I have only owned the table for two day, very happy with the product itself.
